THE LOVE OF BOOKS AND READING, A GIFT FOR LIFE! (0-12 MONTHS)

Even before reading or speaking, babies love books. They adore turning the pages, touching them, chewing them and marveling at the pictures. Reading allows them to learn, to listen and talk; it prepares them to recognize written words; it comforts them and makes them laugh. Register your baby (0-12 months) to the Library and receive a gift bag “Books for Baby” that will introduce your little one to the wonderful world of books.
